From sea to shining sea! That may not have been one of Bix’s songs, but it sure rang true to today’s crowd at the Bix Birthday Bash! Visitors from all over the country filled the rooms and lined the halls of the Fairmount Branch Library today to sing happy birthday to Bix. While a majority of the crowd was from the Quad City area, there were also people from California and Florida and a few states in between. All of them toe tapping and singing, having cake, coffee and punch, and celebrating one the greatest jazz musicians ever! If you missed today’s event, don’t worry in about four months you can help kick-off this year’s Bix Beiderbecke Memorial Jazz Festival at the 23rd Annual Bix Porch Party on Thursday, July 22 at 11:30 a.m. at the Main Library.
